  1. 1. Towards Myosin Powered Lab-on-a-Chip Devices

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Lasse ten Siethoff; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; myosin; actin; molecular motors; lab-on-a-chip; nanobiotechnology; bionanotechnology; diagnostics; nanowires; nanowire arrays; Biomedical Sciences; Biomedicinsk vetenskap;

    Abstract : Myosins are protein motors that use chemical energy in the form of adenosinetriphosphate to produce force and motion. These molecular motors might be usedto power transportation in Lab-on-a-chip devices where a series of laboratory tasks(e.g. separation, concentration and detection) are performed in one sequence on asmall chip.
